and talk about how genius it is. it's like, you know, it's just -- it's a cliche on top of a cliche crowned with a cliche. i mean, what am i supposed to say? where should i begin? bipartisanship, okay. the book it's based on, doris kearns goodwin's "team of rivals." >> i know what you think of that book. people point out the parallels between president clinton and our current president. here is a question. what lesson would you like the current president to take from the true lincoln in your view? >> well, look, lincoln did a lot more of the success in abolishing slavery if we're going to talk about the great triumph of the lincoln years, winning the civil war, abolishing slavery, 90% of that was idealism, not compromise. the movie shows us the compromise. i'm from kansas. we fought a war with missouri over slavery, but it was against compromise, that border war. this had been going on for decades and decades. if you ask me, barack obama's great failures are his zeal to compromise. he's always looking for a grand bargain. this is why he wasn't able to defeat conservatives when they were tot
't mean to overuse the cliche, but have the conversation. >>> so family members of the newtown school shooting saying it's time to put the politics and side and work to end gun violence. >>> serious of ashley judd about a senate run in kentucky? we'll talk about -- we're back after this. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office. >>> after more than
about this bill? kit get through? >> reporter: well, there's sort of two cliche things from capitol hill today, toure. number one, renewed optimism around the legislation. you heard senator menendez say it right before the program he's never been this confident before because there seems to be a bipartisan consensus moving forward. they view it as the right thing to do and republicans realizing that in order to survive as a party they have to do it because latinos are the fastest growing voter bloc but the devil is in the details and usually the detail that is derail these types of large-scale bills. in 2007 president bush wanted to try to make this a reality. it could not get through republicans in the senate and the dream act in 2010. harry reid not able to hold the democratic caucus in that lame duck session because some folks on the moderate part of the democratic caucus were worried about how that vote would look. this time around the ideas of someone as conservative as marco rubio on board and man as liberal dick durbin on board, this has to be the time t
is as a ocd self editor is how often really cliches will show up. and to me that is something i think if you just took even a mediocre speech, trimmed out the troeps, the comforting words, you know, then, you know, suddenly the thing, there are not enough words. you have to substitute in. maybe those are more truthful. but like in orwell's politics in language, certain are markers for insincerity and for an agenda. >> the word frankly, for instance. which is my favorite. >> honestly. >> yeah. >> the sort of familiar catch phrases you almost don't even read in a speech anymore. but i think what you notice in that clip is there was nothing. there was literally not a single one of those that was an originality of an expression and like that goosebumps the quickness with which a certain rhetorical trope came home. wow, that was perfect. that was fast. you know, that is something -- that's hard to talk about, i suppose. but language is power. and, you know, in that, you can really see it. >> he said that obviously he gave that speech after the reverend wright stuff blew up. one of the things that
exercise. it's a lifestyle change. it's kind of cliche, but it truly is. >> so there's no shortcuts. >> no, there aren't. look, it's very simple. it's less going in and more exercise. >> is it a challenge, though, every day? >> oh, yeah. >> but have you changed your lifestyle? >> i've changed, but it's still work. again -- and my wife, deborah roberts, who's on 20/20 and abc, she's a person who eats, but she's a size 4. she works out. she runs. there's a certain mindset, i think, that naturally thin people have that those of us who are not don't have. we were at the chicago airport a few weeks ago coming home, and we're walking down one of the terminals. and we're walking by a mcdonald's, and i went, ooh, mcrib is back. she didn't even see that sign, but i saw mcrib is back. >> probably some beautiful picture. >> my old friend, mcrib. hello, mcrib, i've missed you so. >> what i think is fun is that you actually use d food to woo your then friend into being your fiancee. >> deborah was going off to do the olympics and asked me -- look, we're friends. she's a beautiful woman. we're friends.
. >> the know what the cliche with the know what the nfl stands for? not for long. maybe akers is the type of diet who envy as someone looking over his shoulder performs better. >> sanchez would look over his shoulder and see them to go and perform better. he goes you know what i don't care if he is released he is not coming to jacksonville. >> he cannot throw the ball but the problem is the as such a big name that when ever he has around there is a clamoring for him to play. he caught lightning in a bottle in denver last season. whenever he is around, it is terrible to say but he is just not good enough to have them on your roster. he is so well-known and people are always talk about him he overshadows everyone else by the is not good enough to have that type of attention. >> this all brings me to the jersey bank. the oscar nominations came out and the summer light play but have you seen this? >> naso i am upset about an athlete i getting nominated for a director and iredeland thd out. >> he is and the jersey right here. the start is bipolar and he wears a jersey >> bradley cooper >> righ
the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here illegally. the senate plan, as you've explained, would require essentially officials verify that the u.s. border is secure before any of the immigrants, these immigrants can begin signing up for citizenship. the president's proposal would include no similar border security trigger, if you will. now, to help the president press his case, beginning next week, a grassroots coalition that the white house has actually been working with for months dating back to the president's -- the type the president was campaigning for re-election. the coalition will begin a campaign next week that's called bibles, badges and business. it's a gr
're across the street from here is -- it is almost cliche, but it is amazing. there is one building that is completely destroyed. another building that is damaged, but not destroyed at all. and just on the other side of that, completely destroyed another building. this tornado came through here and just was very selective, but completely devastating in the targets it found. >> it is almost like it sounds like that zigzag we hear so often when we talk about tornadoes. miguel, thank you so much. george, let me bring you in. i hope you have a monitor. have you seen pictures of this, this tornado we have been showing out of adairsville, georgia? >> well, i've seen a few clips from the adairsville tornado and it looks like something that i would be used to seeing in kansas, in may. so it is very ahtypical for thi time of year. but we occasionally get deep south tornado outbreaks in late january, february. they tend to be fast moving storms and therefore quite dangerous. but they do happen. and people that live in that part of the country really do need to watch it pretty much year round.
